m3connect visits the CES in Las Vegas
Visiting CES has become a New Year’s tradition. From 5-8 January, we took a look into the future together with our customers and were inspired by technical innovations at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The motto of this year’s CES was “Human Security” and, as one of the most important IT trade fairs in the industry, it provides inspiration around the use of augmented reality, IoT applications, the latest in display technologies, and even olfactory sensory perceptions in the Metaverse. We look back on exciting and eventful days and are already looking forward to next year.
m3connect as main sponsor at the horn sled race in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
As main sponsor we supported the traditional horn sled competition in Garmisch-Partenkirchen again this year.
This year the race took place for the 52nd time. Here, participants race down the mountain in teams of four at speeds of up to 100 km/h on the specially made sleds. With the support of a professional driver, 3 of our employees took part again this year. With a total of 68 groups, the m3connect sled was able to finish the fast-paced ride with a good 23rd place. We are very proud of our team and would like to thank the Hornschlittenverein Partenkirchen e.V. for the great organization and hospitality.
Successful project completion at “The Cloud One Hotel” in New York
The Motel One Group is expanding into the U.S. and last month opened its first location in New York under the new lifestyle brand: The Cloud One Hotels. The hotel is located in downtown Manhattan directly adjacent to the World Trade Center complex, offering a central location with numerous transportation links. The new location features 326 rooms on 28 floors including two rooftop suites with views of the New York skyline.
We are very pleased that Motel One once again trusted us with the IT planning for the new location and that we were able to support the hotel group during the construction process. In addition to optimizing WLAN coverage, we have already successfully implemented our SD-WAN solution at the new location and built a server rack for optimal cabling organization. To ensure maximum data security, we also built a customized network concept for the customer as a cabling supplier. In addition, we set up all systems redundantly and implemented a backup solution.
The Motel One Group is the first German hotel group to make the leap to the USA. We are pleased about the long-standing partnership as well as the trustful cooperation and wish the Motel One Group continued success.
